Ron Paul asks: Is Gina Haspel Qualified To Be CIA Director?

Will the Senate confirm career CIA officer Gina Haspel to be the Agency’s next director? Sens. McCain and Paul, who don’t often agree, have both vowed to oppose Haspel due to her past involvement in torture and cover-up of torture. They have a good point. But is there a bigger issue in play here? If we are going to have the kind of government agency that the CIA has become – fomenting coups, arming jihadists, paramilitary activities, etc. – maybe, and sadly, she’s just the right person for the job!

  1. Torturers are Sex Offenders, they get aroused by controlling and causing pain in their
    VICTIMS and that only if the VICTIMS are unwilling. Every Cop in
    America is joining in a massive circle jerk mutual masturbation
    session to celebrate the ‘legalization’ of their favorite sport. It’s
    not effective in that the person confesses what the Rapist tells him
    to confess. One commentator said “what happened to Reagan’s Shining city on the hill?”

    The “shining city on the hill” crap was written by Cotten Mather, the Puritan
    High Priest who presided over the Salem Witch Hunt where all those
    who Did Not confess were killed and those who DID confess were
    banished and (this part is very important) their property was taken
    and Given To Mather. He, like the Pilgrims earlier, got his fanatic
    a## kicked out of England for not celebrating Christmas, or Easter
    and just generally being a bunch of Violent Extremist Terrorists.
    What’s amazing about the Republican-dominated “War On Christmas”
    crybabies chose Mather’s words (cherry-picked) to justify their
    Extremist actions. Also, he said that Native Americans, because we’re
    not mentioned in Genesis, must be Constructs of Satan, human in form
    only. Just another episode in the Native Holocaust the U.S. Army is
    so very proud to Keep Doing. And there were in Judge Mather’s “court” a lot of Inquisition Techniques deployed.

    Reagan was fond of quoting Other People’s poetic works without
    ever mentioning that he himself did NOT invent them. Like that speech
    after Challenger blew up, (NASA = “Needs Another Seven
    Astronauts) about ‘slip the surly bonds of earth to touch the clouds’
    –funny how that works, because he didn’t point out that A Real Poet
    actually a combat pilot in World War One actually wrote it. Talk
    about your basic Stolen Honor
